Thrift Haul: Flea Market Haul of Smalls, Kawaii Critters, and Polaroid Goodness


Damn you flea market! I went in search of lettuce and came home with an adorable assortment of smalls to sell instead! Right when I wanted to reduce my small hoard in general. I'm not beating myself up about it too much, though, quite pleased with all I allowed myself to buy this week.


My new retro goodness was making itself at home on the desk area, inspiring me while I list and work on blog posts.


I love how my new 1940s-50s era kawaii collectibles look in the vintage shadow box I scored last time. (See the shadow box on Etsy).


I try to resist smalls but each of these had such large beguiling eyes, they had to come home with me. They're rendered in that perfect 40s cartoon retro style.


I also scored a few owls! They don't sell like they used to but I still love 'em. Check out the bronze owl, the chalkware owl duo, and the tiny owls by clicking the links on Etsy!


My woodland friends are chilling on Etsy, too. We have the bunny, the owl, the doggie with red eyes that stare into your soul, and the fawn.


I bought a bag of minis just to be the owner of that glorious pink seahorse. He's gorgeous! An outstanding beauty! See seahorse and mermaid on Etsy.


The bag of minis came with many birds, too. See the seagullblue birdscanariestropical birds and mallard set on Etsy. I'll have to go back and take better photos and write better descriptions as soon as I can. It's nearly midnight and I'm not too coherent at the moment! I'll be back, birdies, you deserve better!


The little bag of randoms also came with a couple of piggies, both hiding out on Etsy.


And I finally scored a beautiful rainbow striped polaroid land camera, 'twas so fun to  photograph this iconic piece. She's awaitin her new home on Etsy.


Group and Daily Deals? I'm cleaning out my merchandise stockpile so daily deals are returning to social media. Follow me on InstagramTwitter, and Facebook for crazy low deals of gorgeous vintage. I also make deals on Etsy items with readers and often do group deals, so send me an e-mail if there's anything you see and want!


Find anything amazing at the thrifts this weekend?! Do share your finds and posts in the comments.

  2. I love how the cat poses as if it's part of your thrift haul! Very beautiful cat by the way. My cat always inspects all of my thrifting finds when I bring them home.
    I also adore your haul of animal figurines, especially the owls (I'm an owl nut). I must say that I have a soft spot for vintage animal figurines too and my collection grows whenever I find good deals. Here's a cute little frog I found at Salvation Army :)
